Expedia Accepting Bitcoin

So far, I've booked two motel rooms through Expedia. It was easy and even got a refund on one in Bitcoin.
They use Coinbase for their transactions.

I was already planning on getting a room today before I heard about Expedia accepting Bitcoin. Good timing. The experience was extremely easy, as you would expect from Coinbase.
Edit: *paid

Help Compile A List Of Businesses That Only Accept Bitcoin Payments (No Fiat)

All else equal (same price, quality, and product availability), bitcoin users should always choose to buy from businesses that only accept bitcoin rather than businesses that accept bitcoin and fiat. This will hasten the rise of bitcoin and decline of fiat, if ever so slightly. It's nice that Expedia accepts bitcoin now, but if BtcTrip (which does not accept fiat payments) can provide the same flight/hotel for the same price and if they have a good customer satisfaction reputation, you should buy from them.
If you own of a business that accepts bitcoin but not fiat, please post it below and we will add it to the list.
Fiat Not Accepted Here:

Booked a 3 night stay on Expedia

Short on funds and found out Expedia accepts Bitcoin lol I thought it was pretty cool. $300 for a 3 night stay in Vegas, no funds because the concert was recently announced. I thought it was cool. Still got me a nice chunk of coin to keep around lol I'm so tempted to buy more with these new value drops. My coin was worth 15k when I made the purchase by the way so I didn't lose too much.

In 2017 & 2018, many HIGH-PROFILE merchants (Microsoft, Steam, Stripe, Expedia) stopped accepting Bitcoin *specifically* due to high fees. I predict BTC's high fee situation will return with a vengeance, especially once next bull run begins to accelerate.

I just bought something with Bitcoin!

This isn't a question or anything, I just wanted to share and see what people said.
I'm quite new to bitcoin and bought a very small amount (less than 7000 bits) as an entry point to learn about buying, selling, storage, the market, the technology behind the network and to have a bit of skin in the game when participating in the community so that I wasn't simply talking in hypotheticals.
I don't have enough to really consider this an investment of any kind, though I have "made" a bit of money (about 6 bucks) due to the recent surge in value. It seems the smart thing to do in general is to buy during price drops and hodl for long periods of time.
However I was on Steam and remembered someone mentioning in a thread that Expedia accepted Bitcoin so as I was checking out it occurred to me that Steam might. Lo and behold, there it was at the bottom of the drop down menu: "Pay with Bitcoin".
I'm just really excited because three weeks ago I only knew of Bitcoin as an abstract that I had been hearing about for the last five years and that a lot of early adopters had made money from it. I read that it was a great potential for decentralizing finance and revolutionizing the way we spend.
And now I own a bit of Bitcoin in my own private wallet and have a basic understanding of how the blockchain works and the significance of the recent fork and SegWit. I've watched the Bitcoin that I owned grow in value and now I've bought goods with it. I'm just excited to be an active user of Bitcoin both as an investment and as a currency.
I'm looking forward to learning a bunch more and seeing what happens with the market and community.
Anyway, happy hodling to you all and may you all sell high.

06-20 18:02 - 'Move Over, Bitcoin. Ether Is the Digital Currency of the Moment.' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/Adnankhattak removed from /r/Bitcoin within 0-4min

A virtual currency called Ether has been growing alongside Bitcoin in the last year to $35 billion, compared with Bitcoin’s $43 billion.
Source: Coinmarketcap.com | By The New York Times
The price of Bitcoin has hit record highs in recent months, more than doubling in price since the start of the year. Despite these gains, Bitcoin is on the verge of losing its position as the dominant virtual currency.
The value of Ether, the digital money that lives on an upstart network known as Ethereum, has risen an eye-popping 4,500 percent since the beginning of the year.
With the recent price increases, the outstanding units of the Ether currency were worth around $34 billion as of Monday — or 82 percent as much as all the Bitcoin in existence. At the beginning of the year, Ether was only about 5 percent as valuable as Bitcoin.
The sudden rise of Ethereum highlights how volatile the bewildering world of virtual currency remains, where lines of computer code can be spun into billions of dollars in a matter of months.
Bitcoin, the breakout digital currency, is also hitting new highs — one Bitcoin was worth $2,600 on Monday. But the Bitcoin community has struggled with technical issues and bitter internal divisions among its biggest supporters. It has also been tainted by its association with online drug sales and hackers demanding ransom.
Against this backdrop, Ether has been gaining steam. The two-year old system has picked up backing from both tech geeks and big corporate names like JPMorgan Chase and Microsoft, which are excited about Ethereum’s goal of providing not only a digital currency but also a new type of global computing network, which generally requires Ether to use.
In a recent survey of 1,100 virtual currency users, 94 percent were positive about the state of Ethereum, while only 49 percent were positive about Bitcoin, the industry publication CoinDesk said this month.
If recent trends continue, the value of Ethereum’s virtual currency could race past Bitcoin’s in the coming weeks. Virtual currency fanatics are monitoring the value of each and waiting for the two currencies to switch place, a moment that has been called “the flippening.”
“The momentum has shifted to Ethereum — there is no doubt about that,” said William Mougayar, the founder of Virtual Capital Ventures, which invests in a variety of virtual currencies and start-ups. “There is almost nothing you can do with Bitcoin that you can’t do with Ethereum.”
Even though most of the people buying Ether and Bitcoin are individual investors, the gains that both have experienced have taken what was until very recently a quirky fringe experiment into the realm of big money. The combined value of all Ether and Bitcoin is now worth more than the market value of PayPal and is approaching the size of Goldman Sachs.
Investors buying Ether are placing a bet that people will want to use the Ethereum network’s computing capabilities and will need the currency to do so. But that is far from a sure thing. And real-world use of the network is still scant.
Bitcoin, on the other hand, has made inroads into mainstream commerce, with companies like Overstock.com and Expedia accepting Bitcoin for purchases, along with the black-market operators who use the currency.
The fact that there are fewer real-world uses for Ethereum has many market experts expecting a crash similar to the ones that have followed previous run-ups in the price of Bitcoin and other virtual currencies. Even during recent pullbacks, though, the value of Ether has generally continued to gain on Bitcoin in relative terms.
Ethereum was launched in the middle of 2015 by a 21-year-old college dropout, Vitalik Buterin, who was born in Russia and raised in Canada. He now lists his residence, jokingly, as Cathay Pacific Airlines because of his travel schedule.
The Ether he holds has made him a millionaire many times over, but he has generally avoided commenting on the price increase in Ether.
Mr. Buterin was inspired by Bitcoin, and the software he built shares some of the same basic qualities. Both are hosted and maintained by the computers of volunteers around the world, who are rewarded for their participation with the new digital tokens that are released onto the network each day.
Because the virtual currencies are tracked and maintained by a network of computers, no government or company is in charge. The prices of both Bitcoin and Ether are established on private exchanges, where people can sell the tokens they own at the going market price.
But Ethereum was designed to do much more than just serve as a digital money. The network of computers hooked into Ethereum can be harnessed to do computational work, essentially making it possible to run computer programs on the network, or what are referred to as decentralized applications, or Dapps. This has led to an enormous community of programmers working on the software.
One of the first applications to take off was a user-led venture capital fund of sorts, known as the Decentralized Autonomous Organization. After raising over $150 million last summer, the project crashed and burned, and appeared ready to take Ethereum with it.
But the way that Mr. Buterin and other developers dealt with the problems, returning the hacked Ether to users, won him the respect of many in the corporate world.
“It was good to see that there is governance on Ethereum and that they can fix issues in a timely manner if they have to,” said Eric Piscini, who leads the team looking into virtual currency technology at the consulting firm Deloitte.
Many applications being built on Ethereum are also raising money using the Ether currency, in what are known as initial coin offerings, a play on initial public offerings.
Start-ups that have followed this path have generally collected Ether from investors and exchanged them for units of their own specialized virtual currency, leaving the entrepreneurs with the Ether to convert into dollars and spend on operational expenses.
These coin offerings, which have proliferated in recent months, have created a surge of demand for the Ether currency. Just last week, investors sent $150 million worth of Ether to a start-up, Bancor, that wants to make it easier to launch virtual currencies. If projects like Bancor stumble, Ether could as well.
Several big companies have also been building programs on top of Ethereum, including the mining company BHP Billiton, which has built a trial program to track its raw materials, and JPMorgan, which is working on a system to monitor trading.
Over the last few months, over 100 companies have joined the nonprofit Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, including global names like Toyota, Merck and Samsung, to build tools that will make Ethereum useful in corporate settings.
Many of the companies using Ethereum are building their own private versions of the software, which won’t make use of the Ether currency. Speculators are betting that these companies will eventually plug their software into the broader Ethereum network.
There is, though, also the possibility that none of these big trials come to fruition, and the current excitement fizzles out, as has happened many times in the past with Bitcoin after big price surges.
“I hope this is the year where we start to close the gap between the speculative value and the actual value,” Mr. Mougayar said. “There is a lot at stake right now.”
Move Over, Bitcoin. Ether Is the Digital Currency of the Moment.

Expedia and bitcoin? I can't find the payment option.

I am trying to help friends book a hotel room. They do not have any credit cards or paypal (from Myanmar). They require the cards or the sender to have proper ID, but I had remembered hearing Expedia accepted bitcoin; which would solve this issue.
Unfortunately, on the checkout page, there is no bitcoin option. Only the standard four credit cards.
What gives?

Expedia.com no longer accepts bitcoin.

Expedia.com, one of the largest sites to book flights/hotels on used to take bitcoin for years... i went on there to look at flights and noticed they no longer accept it. customer support said they stopped accepting it June 10th. that sucks! a lot of us in the tech industry get a portion of our salary in bitcoin and it was really good to use Expedia for flights. i wont be using them anymore!
the only place left now that is reputable and accepts bitcoin for travel is https://www.CheapAir.com
UPDATE: a lot of people have been messaging me asking me to post contact info for Expedia.com so we can email them asking them to add bitcoin back as a payment method: https://www.expedia.com/service/ then click on Contact Us.
i emailed them and asked them to add it back. so should you!

Dell, Steam, Reddit, Stripe, Circle, Microsoft, Fiverr, Satoshidice, Changetip, Expedia, and many more stopped accepting Segwitcoin, while Coinbase, Bitpay, coins.ph, satoshidice, tippr, purse.io, dark web all are adding BCH support. One Bitcoin is blooming, the other withering.

Expedia Stops Accepting Bitcoin Payments

From an Expedia customer:
“On Jan 14 I attempted to book a room on Expedia paying Bitcoin via Coinbase. The funds were sent but the transaction timed out and expired. I ended up booking the hotel using my credit card.
Two weeks later, Coinbase contacted me confirming they located the transaction but Expedia has the funds so they would have to handle the refund….
When I get through to Expedia, it’s like Chinese water torture. No one who is a customer service rep at Expedia knows what Bitcoin is much less where my money is…
After three one hour calls with Expedia I am ready to give up and take the loss But I am really unhappy about it.”
